MK Marathon Relay

Marathon Relay event is part of the MK Marathon Weekend

The Marathon Relay takes place on the same day as the Milton Keynes Marathon event, pitting teams of four runners (adults only 17+) against each other, each competitor running a leg of approximately 10km.

The relay event is open to businesses, charities, clubs, or even groups of friends and is characterised by a strong element of friendly competition as teams compete to be seen as the fittest or the fastest. These titles represent not only an enviable PR title but also bragging rights that last for a full year.

This opportunity does not come around every day and is something not to be missed. Race bibs will need to be collected by the Team Captain on the morning of the race.

Team changes can be made up until 15th April at midnight. Please email us if you need us to cancel a team member to allow you to recruit someone else. You can then report any further team changes to the Relay HQ on race day. Team members can run in any order, but the team bibs must be used in sequences A, B, C then D.

My first time running the MK Marathon and it was an absolutely fantastic event from start to finish from the organisation, ease of parking, accessibility, baggage, toilets, beautiful route, amazing stadium finish, fab medal, T-shirt, and countless help from volunteers. My favourite marathon by far. I will definitely be back, cannot fault this race, perfect in so many ways. Thank you MK Marathon Weekend!

An excellent event that was brilliantly organised.

The family had plenty to do while they waited for me to plod over the finish line.

Cant wait to book next year.

This is one of my favourite marathons out there, it offers a unique course compared to your standard road marathon and seems to get better, year on year. It’s a lot of fun, and if you haven’t done it yet, you really should!

Doing a marathon is quite stressful in itself, but Milton Keynes was a great event – the fantastic organisation, ease of getting there, and quick, simple registration process on arrival took the stress out of this element so that I could focus my energies on running! I had a fantastic day – thank you.

The Rightmove Milton Keynes marathon is a lovely course through country parks, around lakes, through woodlands, and more.
The main thing to mention though is the support, which is absolutely tremendous around the whole course. Milton Keynes supporters are terrific and cover almost the whole course. It really does provide such a boost – and the bonus finish in the football stadium is terrific too. Highly recommend
